Qualcomm Optimizes Chips for New Google Android P Operating System
10 May, 2018, 14:33
Google has made some minor tweaks to the wearable OS it insists is doing just great. Those changes are small, however, and none of the updates solve the biggest problems about Wear OS watches: the ultra-slow processor that powers all of them, and the underwhelming health and fitness features that lag behind rival smartwatches. In March this year, Google announced that the rebranding of its Android Wear operating system. Users will only be able to wake up the screen by pressing the side button and a long press will switch back to normal mode.
As per some sources, Qualcomm's senior director of wearables, Pankaj Kedia, revealed that the company is working on developing a new platform for wearables to be announced this fall, alongside a "lead smartwatch". Having said that, I know people who are still rocking the first generation Android Wear smartwatches with close to a full-day of battery life.
We are already starting to see some of this work pay off, with an expanded list of devices that are already compatible with the Android P developer preview, as compared to previous Android betas.

A change in chip architecture and design could result in the next Snapdragon Wear paving the way for more battery-efficient smartwatches with more interesting or practical designs that boost the appeal of Wear OS devices without compromising on their connectivity or potential processing power. However, the 2100 was outdated at launch and didn't deliver on promises of smaller watches and better performance. The new chipset will be available in multiple variations with all having Bluetooth and Wi-Fi while fitness-oriented chips will also include Global Positioning System. Not because the name sucked, as Wear OS does do a better job of reflecting the platform's support for both Android and iOS devices.
